With sisters there's no room for fibs. You say what's on your mind making them both hate and love you for it. Subsequently, there are things you just can't get away with saying to anyone other than your sister(s):
No matter where you work, Quebec's Act respecting labour standards, enforced by the Commission des normes, de l'équité, de la santé et de la sécurité du travail (CNESST), lays out which days off you are entitled to take. Here are some of them.
The Quebec government specifies that employers must allow employees to be absent from work for the purpose of jury duty or to be a witness during a trial — so your employer cannot fire, suspend or discipline you for your absence.
Employers are not required to pay you if you are required to be absent for court. But prospective jurors and witnesses can claim an allowance or compensation for time spent in court.
If your employer penalizes you for a court absence, you can make a complaint with the Tribunal administratif du travail, in addition to taking any appropriate legal action.
One Montrealer, Won Queenie See, shared her experience of the protest with us, saying: "I was proud to walk the streets of Montreal and be surrounded by my community, my friends and allies. Together, we chanted #StopAsianHate and let our voices be heard."
She said she "encourage[s] everyone to speak up against racism, to check in on your Asian friends and stand by your Asian friends."
The Groupe d'Entraide contre le racisme envers les asiatiques au Québec (GECREAQ) was the group that planned the protest, and they let us know that thousands were in attendance and at least 250 people were watching it virtually.
Based on the survey, 66% of Quebecers sympathized more with Harry and Meghan, while 18% sympathized more with the royal family.
Forty-nine percent of Quebec respondents said the events show that the royal family holds racist views, while 20% said the events did not show racism within the family. Thirty-two percent said they didn't know.
According to the survey, 72% of Quebecers believe the monarchy has become "a negative symbol for Canada" and 71% said, "we have to get rid of it."
